Icom IC-SAT100 Satellite PTT Radio
Icom and Iridium team up to bring you the IC-SAT100, the
best in truly global satellite push to talk communications.
Together, they bring high-quality world reknowned hardware and services
to your solution.
Icom’s IC-SAT100 allows users from around the world to communicate with a group of PTT radios at the push of a button. To do this, the IC-SAT100 utilizes the Iridium Satellite Network covering the earth including both poles providing wide area global communications anywhere on the planet.
Unmatched Reach, Reliability, and
Return on Investment
A recognized communications leader, Iridium works with its partners to
offer key advantages for land mobile voice and data, including continuous
global coverage with competitive universal rates. Uninterrupted
connectivity is available now and will be for decades to come through
Iridium's next-generation satellite constellation.
Iridium Continues To Push the
Boundaries of Communications
By giving its partners access to core technologies and
toolkits that unlock the power of its network, Iridium enables its ecosystem to build more innovative land
mobile products and services than any single company could achieve on its own. This in turn delivers the best you can find on the market for PTT handhelds.
Reliable Communications in the Hands
of Who Needs It the Most
Iridium is the catalyst for a growing number of cutting-edge mobile
voice and data solutions across a range of industries including
Emergency Response, Government and Military, Transportation,
Heavy Equipment, Scientific Research, Energy and Utilities,
and Travel; just to name a few.
Icom’s IC-SAT100 radios uses Satellite PTT (Push-To-Talk), which is a two-way radio system using the Iridium Satellite Network. This network allows you to use the IC-SAT100 in remote, isolated areas without mobile phones or landline network infrastructure or if terrestrial network infrastructure is rendered unusable by human or natural disasters.
Unlike satellite phones, IC-SAT100 users can immediately start talking to all the radios in the same talkgroup with just a push of the transmit (PTT) button.
Real-Time Low-Latency Communication
Using 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Iridium Satellites, the IC-SAT100 provides low-latency communication and broader more reliable network coverage compared to Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) satellites.
